This is a great teaching tool . My students love it when it's part of their job.

Perfect Sized Chart but Sticks Don't Fit.
This is the perfect size for something so all-inclusiive. You have numbers, counting objects, pockets to hold the numbers and counting objects, and the columns are already labeled.
An easily solved drawback - The bundled sticks do not fit in the plastic pocket well, once you get beyond the 40th day of school. I used Place Value blocks to mark the days instead. Every time we'd have 10 little blocks in the "ones" column, we'd shout, "exchange!" and take them out and put a "tens stick" in the tens column.
(The sticks make good mask holders and bookmarks.)

A great upgrade from my old chart
I use the product with my K's. The stick pockets are a nice size and the colors are great as a visual reminder of place value. We have a challenging schedule so I do not make use of the numbers as I should only because - there are not enough to easily count down and they are small. It takes time to shuffles through and then when it is perfect , I have small people who like to manipulate it after calendar time. My group this year is very kinesthetic and anything at their level gets reshuffled constantly. No job board either for me this year.
The storage pocket is great and will make packing up the classroom and finding those numbers next year easy. Love that it works right on my Whiteboard but has grommets,too

I love it! The only reason that I did not give this product all 5 stars, is because there are not enough yellow numbers. I like to count the days of school and count down the days remaining, but there are not enough 9s to do this. When you reach 91 days (with 89 lefts) or 99 days of school, there are not enough numbers. The packets only comes with 1 yellow 9. Other than that, I am very impressed. Just wish they would send extra 9s so the product could be used as intended.
